I’m a suspicious and paranoid person when I’m around people I haven’t known for too long.
It’s a terribly bad habit.
I like to put it off and stuff, but when I get on a roll….BOY do I GET ON A ROLL.
2 body paragraphs and 1 introductory and I’ve done 5 1/2 pages. The limit for this essay is 5 pages. So….I’ll probably just hit “enter” a few times and create a few more sentences tomorrow, and call it an essay. :P
wanna know my thesis for this essay? which is based off of artwork and perspective lines and stuff?
GO TO CHURCH
Ahahaha yep :P Now I sort of know why all of my friends ask me to write for them. :P ahahaha doesn’t mean I will. >:D
It’s what we do.
Who knew that those dumb “like and I’ll post something on your wall” Facebook statuses were so cleansing?
Like seriously, it really felt good. So weird.
I feel depressed.
And yet I’m not.
But I certainly am.
But I’ve been more depressed than this before, so that certainly can’t be it.
So many things are right….
But so many are wrong.
I’m in such a weird juxtaposition. I wish it would all just straighten itself out.
At least I found out what my problem is over here: I don’t genuinely laugh. enough that is. I probably laugh or chuckle sometimes, but not as much to keep me spirited and joyful like I usually am. :P I just can’t find anyone to keep me entertained. This is a big compliment to people from my high school and other activities, by the way. :P I don’t want to cling to those times so that I don’t get any friends over here….but I don’t believe I’m clinging, and yet I’m still having such a rough time.
And even if I do find one or two people who I really get along with, they’re always hanging out with someone I don’t really, so it’s a strange and awkward position I’m in.
And then when I laugh at what I deem funny, everyone else looks at me as if I’m a cruel and mean person. I could possibly be, but I’ve gotten that look or awkward silence enough to just shut up and not say anything. Even though when someone DOES say something, along the lines of what I was thinking, it sounds a lot better than them.
I guess what I want, pathetic as it is, is someone to just hold and lean against and at least touch when I need it. Sounds perverted, but if I think about it, I came into contact with so many more people back during high school and other years, but I haven’t touched a single person at all since I’ve gotten here. AND I live with 65 people. You would think things would go faster, but I guess not. and after rereading this paragraph, I guess I need a little more explanation: I’m just a touchy-feely guy who would punch or bump or lean or hug or playfully choke or ruffle hair or do something, but I haven’t done a single instance of that in the 9 WEEKS i’ve been here. It seems so pathetic.
Is it weird that I like going to work more than I like going to school? even though I do more work at work, and I’m dead tired during the day, I guess I feel more appreciated there and useful there than here. at the dorms. school is mainly fine, but dorm life is the second aspect of college, and that’s the aspect that isn’t working out so well.
But no matter how much my life sucks, it also is amazing at the moment: I have a job (seasonal as it is, it’s a job, something not many other americans have), I go to a UC school, I have parents willing to spend 5 years tuition on me with no grants or scholarships, I have opportunities in leadership that others do not, I am moderately spoiled, I am of partial intelligence, I’m not the ugliest guy around, no disabilities (knock on wood), I can dance, I can draw, I can sing decently enough, I’m possibly more cultured than some of my peers, I have a house to go back to every weekend, I may get an internship, I have many friends, and I have plans for the future. These are the things that keep me going, and I hope will continue to keep me going as time passes.
And what keeps me going for tomorrow? The fact that two of my bestest friends are visiting! ahahahah well…one isn’t my BEST friend, but she is a very close one. :) And also that I am working black friday, but got REALLY good hours, and also that my professor approved of my rushed thesis and wanted the group I was working with to work on it to make it better. which I avoided of course, since I didn’t want to look like I was his pet or anything, but yea. :P ahahaha After listing everything, I guess I have more good stuff than bad, even though the bad may overshadow all the good at the moment. :P Just got to see through that and remember all I have and that it will hopefully always be mine. :)
Thanks again Tumblr for letting me vent, even though this was a more depressing tone than usual. :) it really helps. ahahaha and sorry for whoever read through all of this! good job for making it to the end! :P
So here’s my review, no holds-barred, free of spoilers.
Harry Potter was awesome. I was thouroughly entertained and kept on edge, and I really loved it. It was a relatively good interpertation of the book, with only a few things being added, and a few things being excluded.
However, it was missing something. The only way I can describe it, would be that it missed severity. The actions that the characters took and some of the scenes in the movie were not weighty enough/didn’t have enough impact on the viewer. When certain characters died (which some did, and that is not a spoiler, just a given), I did not feel any impact or I did not feel that the actors/characters were really torn by the deaths. I had not read the book for quite some time, so I forgot a few deaths, but even when I saw them on the screen, as if it was for the first time, I was not shocked or traumatized. I was just “meh.” I guess what I felt was missing was enough interconnection between the characters, and a bond between the character and the audience.
The movie did a good job on capturing the “lost” and “scattered” feeling all the characters had though. There were long period of times where, like in the book, the characters were just milling about in the wilderness, trying to figure out what to do and etc. And the anger and frustration and hopelessness was thouroughly siphoned to the audience, not only in these idling scenes, but also in the intense action scenes sparsely placed through the movie.
While I wanted more action from this movie, I was highly impressed by the amount of action and on-the-edge feeling I had the entire time I was in the theatre. The scenes where something of significance was ACTUALLY happening, I had to remember to breathe. Even for me, someone who had read the book and knew what was coming, I was sucked into the film and tense the entire time. It was one of the highlights of the movie in my opinon.
These intense scenes, sadly, always took place in the dark however. Though I can see where the movie producers and people were going with this (just like how the audience can barely tell what is going on, so can the characters), I thought it was almost a disservice to us. I WANTED to see some parts in better lighting. Don’t get me wrong—You could totally tell what was happening—but it would have been better if the scenes were a little brigher. And while on the subject of things getting mushed up and needing improvement, I think that some of the lines were rushed and hushed too much. Again, I can see what the producers/directors/everyone were trying to do, but I thought that some of the lines were too mushed for everyone to get them. Also, a lot of new characters (who have no faces/are only mentioned in passing since they’re dead) are introduced and the audience has to keep up with the 5 new names brought to light without, again, any faces to rely on. Many old characters (not all of them memorable) reappear and I think for a while it was hard for the audience to keep up. A lot of stuff obviously goes through the characters heads too, and only if one has read the book, do they get the joy of understanding what is happening behind the scenes, and not only on the surface. It’s something I have always thought was wrong with the franchise. I also thought they could have made do with a lot more flashbacks (they only had one proper flashback), but instead they relied on the audience to have prior knowledge to everything, which is something that I was not too happy with. OH! and one more thing: I did not like that they had to introduce some characters, who were introduced WAY earlier in the books and only introduced now, just because those characters turned out to have something important to do with the storyline. Not the business man….not the business. The camera was also too shakey and crazy at some points which got on my nerves, since those points were the best action scenes.
BUT. THAT WAS EVERYTHING WRONG WITH IT. From now on, it’s just good reviews. :D Trust me. That was long, and it seemed like a lot was wrong, but at least 3 times as much stuff was amazing and out of this world. :D
The movie is HILARIOUS, while still being able to stay sober and serious and dreary. I was highly impressed by this paradoxical duality and I thought that this was good on the screenwriting and actor’s delivery end. The action was also very legit and, as I said before hand, very intense and kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. The CG was also AMAZING and REALLY helped with the story. And even though CG things weren’t there (Dobby, Kreacher, spells, nagini (voldemorts snake), etc), the actors did an AMAZING job of making the audience believe it was. Really well done. Also, whoever picked where some of the scenes should take place did an amazing job too, cause even if someone was bored/not interested in one of the scenes, they could just look behind the actors and imagine themselves on a cliff, or in the forest, or by the ocean and stuff. REALLY gorgeous stuff that I sort of want to visit now. :P And even though it was unrealistic how well-kept everyone was even though they were on the run and stuff, I loved the make-up and clothing decision. ahahaha they looked amazing while fighting for their lives. It was ridiculous but enjoyable for that sense. They also did a good job of explaining the Deathly Hallows (they utilized CG for this! it made me VERY happy, since I didn’t want them to freaking tell the story but just show the main trio sitting there. I was glad with this decision.) and I think that everyone understood what was happening with the whole situation. :) I don’t think they really went over the horcrux deal enough, but most of them are found/destroyed in the 2nd part, so I wasn’t too distressed over that. There were also some great decisions with the timing of the cameras (slow mo here, go back to normal speed there, etc), which made the ride THAT much better :) The soundtrack was also fairly decent, with not as much pumping music as there was suspenseful/sorrowful music, but it did a good job.
And that’s it. :) Overall, I, personally, did not LOVE the movie, but there was no dislike in my opinion of it at all. I would say that it met my expectations and surpassed them, but not enough for me to herald this movie as the best thing of all time. I am definitely willing to see it again, and I probably will.
IMPORTANT SIDE NOTE! the 2nd part comes out 3 DAYS AFTER MY BIRTHDAY THIS SUMMER! GUESS WHAT I AM DOING?!?!?!?!?!?!? AHAHAAHAH doesn’t compare to having come out on your ACUTAL birthday *cough cough* Jackie Nguyen *cough cough*, but I can cope. :P Happy birthday by the way Jackie! :)
at the same time,I don’t wanna watch it
after the epilogue and the credits roll
i’ll be clapping and crying then be sitting there like
Exactly what I’m predicting will happen to me. I have no clue what I’ll do afterwards. D:
Full review later today, since it’s time for bed. Look forward to it! And I promise: no spoilers.
For Naurto that is.
It’s finally in it’s final stages, but it is simply amazing. Yea, it’ll probably still go on for another 2, 3 years, but until then, I forsee only maybe one or two chapters being boring. The rest (since one is released every week) will be amazing and epic for sure. :D
